My father in law is George Miller (back row) was in C. Cottage Banstead. His brother Fred was also in the same home.
Would appreciate any information about the home from that time.

Note from LNW : Hello Glynne, I suggest you take a look at the Publications on the website of the Banstead History Research Group. We have a book on Beechholme there. There are also many memories sent in by ex residents.
